ImageI’m a great in the kitchen, but when it comes to eggs, I’m all thumbs – that’s why I’m so smitten by the incredible patience and skill of Franc Grom. His egg sculptures are absolutely amazing, and yet so fragile, that one can barely breathe around them without fear of shattering their beautiful and masterful designs.

Inspired by the Slovenian designs that are traditionally found in the small village of Vrhinka where he grew up, Grom works with a very tiny electric drill, a rock-steady hand and the eye of an eagle to create these stunning works. Sometimes it can take him several months to finish one, because the process of piercing such miniscule holes into such a delicate medium takes thousands and thousands of hours of patience and dedication (and some 2,500 to 17,000 holes per egg). Some of them have connecting parts that are barely a millimeter thick and he often illuminates them from the inside to draw more attention to the details. At this point, he is reported to have over three hundred of these eggs completed.

Chaos-Melody-992x609Russian artist Sergey Skachkov uses Photoshop to create wonderous otherworldy cityscapes that ignite the imagination and tell a thousand tales.

“I dream of strange, wonderful cities on the water and hear a beautiful tune. This is a parallel world that lives from its own law and rules. The metallic rasp of a technogeneous world serves as a background for the sound of horns warning about something. The very air seems replete with humming and buzzing melodies. This fantastic apparition fascinates and astonishes.”

The combination of science fiction and fantasy is tinged with a slight touch of steampunk to create an incredible body of futuristic works worthy of the attention of filmmakers worldwide. Wouldn’t it be amazing to see these landscapes brought to life on screen?

ImageBased in London, Jonty Hurwitz is one part artist, one part scientist. His incredible anamorphic sculptures have been gaining popularity due to their impressively creative nature – they can only be viewed via their own reflections. Using cylindrical mirrors, Hurwitz creates each piece by scanning a three-dimensional object and working with it in a special kind of computer software in order to manipulate it’s physical shape. “Finding that line between art and science is the underlying motivator in my art life,” says Jonty. “At heart I’m an artist scientist archetype that loves projects and people. Each of the art works and ventures on this site represent a part of what I am.”
